Grandmother Prays for Money, Wins $1 Million Lottery
The odds of Wendy Johnson winning were literally one in a million.
A grandmother in North Carolina prayed for lottery winnings, and her calls were answered to the tune of $1 million.
Wendy Johnson was shopping for flowers when she got the call she’d won a second chance drawing. Her entry was chosen from 983,012 others in the $300,000,000 Supreme Riches drawing, according to the North Carolina Educational Lottery.
“I never thought I’d win, but I was praying,” Johnson told lotto officials. “When I got the phone call, I actually thought I’d won one of the smaller drawings. It never occurred to me that I’d actually win the $1 million.”
Johnson says she’ll use the windfall to buy a new house and take care of her children and grandchildren.
